there's a quite serious bug in the password reminder after implementing this: www.atutor.ca/atutor/mantis/view.php?id=3553

I now get this mail from the system when using the tool

Dear Vegard A.,

Your login name is Vegard A..

To set a new password, follow the link below.

etc etc


problem is my login name is not "Vegard A..", in this case it is "vegard".

good! reverting to the password_reminder.php file from 1.6.1 will work in the meantime, in case anyone wonders.

thanks, patch 0011 restored the functionality the way it was in 1.6.1, but I don't think that is what was ment with the change in the first place.

Now I get:

Dear vegardinst,

Your login name is vegardinst.

To set a new password, follow the link below.


while the original idea was that it should work like this:

Dear Vegard,

Your login name is vegardinst.

To set a new password, follow the link below.


..that is using both real first name and login name..

Hi, thanks for the testing.

But, in order to use different names for title and login, we need to modify language database, which will result in the change on all translated language packs. As this is not a serious issue but the impact is significant, we will leave the fix into next version.

Thanks.

How is a patch applied? Where are they? I see the patcher and patches can be uploaded if the source for the patch is known, I think I can do it.

Hi, if you use ATutor 1.6.2 and have internet connection, the patcher should list all available patches.

Please check your ATutor version at admin home page.

Thanks.
